Jason Urroz

Jason Urroz is an interpreter who loves providing people with meaningful connections to nature through outdoor exploration. A former National Park Service interpretive ranger in Yosemite, Jason Urroz is now the Director of the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation’s Kids in Parks program—a self-guided, brochure-led program designed to get kids and families unplugged, outdoors, and reconnected to nature for both their overall health and the health of our parks and public lands. Over the past 9 years, Jason has taken the Kids in Parks program from an idea grounded in theory and research, and grown it into a national network of more than 170 trails in 10 states and Washington, D.C. His program has crossed agency boundaries through partnerships formed with various national parks, state parks, city/county parks, and other land management agencies, creating a network of outdoor opportunities that have helped hundreds of thousands of kids and families get active outdoors.
